I. Basic Information» Name:
Honami “Honey” Morimoto» Alias:
200 (20 years in terms of actual growth)» Gender:
Gotei United» Appearance Image:
I. Personality» Personality:
In terms of externals, Honey doesn’t appear to have much going on with her. Sometimes it seems hard to really get her attention on things, mostly in that she doesn’t communicate very well with other people. She generally seems quite stress free, abnormally so, for a person, so that could throw off anyone who looks at her into thinking she’s just a soft-headed spacer. Her looks aren’t much to garner respect or thoughtfulness of others, and such only give her the message that not many would want much to do with her.
However, such appearances can make people think she’s some cutie wooty creature to hug, but she dislikes this idea as well; not that she hates the idea of being considered cute, but more the patronizing aspects of it. She can’t communicate her thoughts on the matter very well, so it’s merely a never to be heard pet peeve that will continue to bug her.
If there’s anything Honey’s serious about, it’s a schedule. She always makes a mental map of what she’s doing day by day, and ensures she fulfills said activities in a tight time code. Honey is a very responsible person and ensures everything is taken care of before she moves onto the next task, such as cleaning up the entire house before she leaves. However, such a routine can seem strange to others, in that sometimes she could suddenly and completely dip out of a social interaction if the following thing in her day is deemed important enough to stick strong to. This can make her look rude and asocial, but it’s more her just suddenly leaving without saying anything, than anything else, but if you were to follow her to her next activity, you’d completely understand why she would suddenly go.
Remember how it was mentioned that she seemed to not be listening? Well, she is. She always is. Honey always listens to people, regardless of if it looks like she is or she isn’t. She kind of can’t help it, her hearing and processing of information is so acute and organized that it isn’t difficult at all for her to be listening while doing something else. She takes other people’s words seriously, a bit too much so, Honey is a bit of a literalist without meaning to be. Though she does take in and remember everything anyone has ever told her, and if asked, can even recite an entire conversation with hardly any paraphrasing, on paper of course.
The devil is in the details for this pup, and she takes those details to heart. Be it due to her slow aging biology, or just being particularly skillful in memory, she has probably the sharpest possible memory anyone could have, even beyond that. She’s able to remember even little things like conversations or what she had for breakfast three years ago, the only hurdle being that she’d have to write it down rather than be able to properly articulate it.
Due to her sharp senses and training given by her Uncle, Honey has become quite predisposed to using them to the fullest. How is that achieved? Analyzation of course. Honey is often one to learn how things smell, geography of places, and many other things. For instance, she is able to name people by their scents, and track them down from even a forever apart. She is also able to find her way back to somewhere, even if she had only been there once. If asked to describe certain places or people, she would give a literal essay on everything about that subject, from appearance to smell descriptions, and even how it’s presence feels.
She’s A Strange One:
If the impression wasn’t given already, Honey is an oddity within the ranks of shinigami, and identifying such doesn’t stop at her demonic half. The way she does and lives just looks strange to the common outsider, and such a thing makes relationships a difficult thing for her to attain. She is typically alone, even though she knows plenty well the value of teamwork. She’s simply.. Too odd for most people to really gel with, or stand, and such a thing is upsetting to her, but she never shows her displeasure with her situation towards others.
Loyal And Obedient:
If there’s anything Honey’s super good at, it’s following directions. Her Uncle taught her to always be respectful and listen to others, and to carry out orders when told to. While she isn’t blindly loyal to any superior who points her to a target to dismember, she doesn’t really sit and think about the moral complexities of her actions, she just does it. She was ordered to do it by a superior, thus it’s done, and if anything it would be a wrong thing for her to be punished just for following said orders. She hasn’t had to make a majorly hard decision in an order as of yet, and thus she has no perspective on defying said orders.
Despite her demonic side making her out to seem as if she were some wild beast, Honey is very much in control of herself. Even as a young child she was predisposed to preventing herself from harming those she loved, showing a clear conflict of interest between her humanity and her instincts. Her Uncle’s lessons that he instilled in her only cemented this ability to tie herself back, and even if she were to be in a full moon transformation, she’d sooner run away than attack her allies. However, unless it was made clear to her it was training, she would not raise a finger to harm an ally or innocent, meaning Honey would allow people to bully her, and she would never have the desire to fight back, because that would be in confliction with what she was taught.
I. History» History:
A bit of a forbidden hand was at play in Honey’s birth; Amidst fighting each other, a demon fell in love with a shinigami, courtship eventually leading to foolish love, to a child. The pregnancy was a long and painful process for Honami’s mother, taking quite a time longer than the typical gestation. They remained on Earth, hidden from either of their life’s responsibilities, deep within a forest where none would find them. The demon who had fallen for her supported her through every step, however had vanished one day suddenly, when he had gone on a hunting trip. His heavily pregnant partner soon found his remains, golden fur forever singed by the light of day. He had always been so careful to not interact with the rising sun, but something caused the star to finally catch up to him.
Honami was born in a lake under a full moon, a successful birth of a shinigami-demon hybrid, bearing the familiar golden locks, ears, and tail of her father. The child was almost a sad sight for her mother, but she was glad such a healthy child was born as a product of their mingling. Though soon, would her mother realize, that her child did not grow the same way a typical child would. It had been a year and a half, and despite being able to walk far earlier than the typical child, Honami was no bigger than an infant. She was a slow growing child, though her actual development was rapid. It was a good ten years of life it took for Honami to look even close to a young toddler, and throughout that time, her mother got weaker and weaker; the pregnancy was a huge toll on her body, though it was a toll she was happy to go through. When her mother was hardly strong enough to even walk on her own, she took Honami to the Soul Society, and begged an old friend of her’s, a fellow shinigami, to take her in, despite her appearance and slow growth. She wanted Honami to have somewhere good to grow up big and strong, and knew that despite hardships, her old friend could provide her with a way to survive and live a life worth being in. While it was a reluctant acceptance, he took the small hybrid in, and bid her mother a final goodbye.
Uncle, was how she was to refer to the person who took her in. Despite being only the equivalent of a one year old in body, Honami was far more developed than the typical toddler, being far stronger and more acute. Uncle realized this, despite her slower actual development, and put her to doing chores. It would sound cruel to any to put a small child to do work, but he never made her do something she couldn’t handle, besides, he’d be raising no spoiled child under his roof, even if said child were different than the typical scamp running around Soul Society. It was a long thirty years before the norm became deviated; Her mother never explained much about her demonic half or how it would affect her, but he cracked it up to something that he would learn on his own time. Give the woman a break, she was dying, he told himself. Honami had started to act vicious at times, tearing furniture, running around and knocking things down, and even “biting” her Uncle. Though she never brought actual harm to anyone (her skills in restraint towards people at such a young age were noticeable), it was irritating to have to see her tear the place apart every time she had a bout of the wilds. With her behavior, sometimes the man was worried she’d go out of control and he would have to get her put down, despite her deceased mother’s begging, but she always seemed to restrain herself from causing him any harm, beyond puppy-like nippings.
Uncle had taken her to the forested areas of the Rukongai in order to let out her energy in a safe place when she had no chores to do, and instructed her that if she ever had those feelings, to walk to the forest and let it out there. Despite still being a wordless child at the time, she understood, and would do so from then on. Such was the norm for several years, until the young hybrid kept pawing at his Zanpakuto, often looking at him expectantly while doing so. He told her over and over that he couldn’t give her the sword, and that she couldn’t use it, which only left her looking confused. It took til try eleven for him to understand what she wanted to do; She never took the sword out of the sheath, just poked at it and stared at him, as if asking him to do something.
It clicked; she wanted to learn how to use a sword, perhaps even…
Her first experiences with training were things such as swinging a wooden sword over and over, carrying heavy objects in circles, and even keeping fragile items safe while her Uncle sparred with her. With immense stamina and strength for her age, it took nearly a full day for most exercises to cease. The young one having worried about her chores during the entirety of each exercise, but her Uncle reassured that what she was doing was more important than scrubbing floors. After a full week of such exercises and overall being tired, she was put to bed and woken up the next morning to do laps around the Rukongai districts. At least three times a week a golden haired wolf child would be running around the streets for hours on end, though she was one day stopped by some Plus children who had watched her during her previous rounds. She still couldn’t speak, which lead to her becoming restless with their constant questioning, til the bigger of the three shoved her to the ground for trying to get past them. They got relentless with their mean curiosity, pulling at her ears and poking her tail, Honami becoming restless enough to suddenly growl, and slap the kid across the face. Except, it was no regular slap.
She had scratched him, thin lines of blood where her fingers nary touched him were set, causing him to freak out, his two friends becoming equally panicked, as the young hybrid quickly slipped away. Words were not needed for her Uncle to know what happened; There was blood on her fingernails and a wild look in her eyes. Such was enough for him to know she hurt someone, but she wasn’t able to tell him what happened. This only pushed him to be stricter with teaching her restraint; her natural threshold wasn’t enough in higher stress situations, and if there were to be a mauling… He didn’t need to think of what had to be done, he simply needed to prevent it. He had the girl live, breathe, and repeat mantras, even if she herself couldn’t speak, he knew she could think. Protect the innocent. Bring no harm to allies. Crush those who bring harm to others. Such lessons were what were instilled in the young one for many moons.
She had encountered the children once more during her laps, though this time ended very differently than the first. They had begun harassing her, however she betrayed her own instincts, and gave each a pat on the head. They were innocents, they were to be protected, however this weirded them out, leaving her shoved on the ground and the lot of them running away. Similar encounters would happen as she would do her laps, coming home looking plenty trounced, but never having harmed another Plus.
Then she became restless near the next full moon, several months later, her Uncle awakened to the sound of screaming and the slamming of giant footsteps. A hollow? How could a hollow have come in? What kind of creature could be making… Such…
His eyes laid on a giant wolf, walking the streets, panicked citizens watching the creature in fear, as several shinigami had come to answer the disturbance in the much more adjusted district of the Rukongai. As her Uncle approached, the creature was covered in slowly closing slash wounds, but regardless did not raise it’s head to attack her assailants. It didn’t attack anyone, keeping it’s head down and just… Walking. He came to it’s face and softly asked, “Honey, if that’s you, stop.”
The creature stopped immediately as the man stood and spoke to her, glowing red eyes fixed on him. He called to the other shinigami who were simply watching the creature helplessly as they barely could get her current wounds on her, saying that it was fine.. She was, his daughter. He asked her where she was even going, and to his surprise, he finally got an answer,
“For..Est.” The giant horned canid’s maw opened to release a child-like voice, the first time she would ever speak. She must have felt the rush of the wild, came outside in the middle of the night… And turned into whatever she currently was. She clearly was struggling to keep herself together until she got to the place where she could be freely wild.
It was a long night, but upon the daylight’s shimmer, she was a little one again, resting on his lap, his theory was correct. There was an idea, and such he instructed her to never go to the forest at night, especially not at the full moon.
She had become far more chatty since that night, however her speech was terrible. It was enough to understand what she was trying to talk about, but she couldn’t say half a sentence correctly, no matter how hard her Uncle tried to teach her. It didn’t matter, what did matter was ensuring that terrifying night didn’t happen again. His personal capability of training her went up to it’s limits, years upon years of having her practice and spar and control her strength. He found that having her experience harsh physical training often lessened her wildness, especially towards the full moon. He instructed her to never stray into the moon’s light upon a full moon, and to never reveal her demonic nature unless it was an emergency.
She was somewhere around 150 years old when tragedy struck. Her Uncle had done his usual routine, going out on Gotei orders. He had promised that they could go on another hunting trip on Earth when he returned with the new moon. She had noticed that he had begun to have an odd smell, and walked slower than usual several months before, but she never showed concern over it. She wasn’t sure how to even feel about the sight, but she cleaned harder than she usually did. She wanted Uncle to come back to a clean house, he always wanted a clean house…
She heard a presence at the door, a full two days after when he’d come back. While she was upset that he didn’t uphold his promise, she was at least super happy to pounce at the door, bursting it open and landing on the person who was on the other side, hugging them and rubbing her head against them.
This person, was not Uncle.
The shinigami, a young looking man, had come to break, terrible news. Uncle had passed away during a mission. Honami didn’t understand, asking how long. The young man was clearly taken aback by how she seemed to not quite get what he was saying, her red eyes rounded as he tried to explain, carefully, how he wasn’t coming back. When, she would ask every time he finished. This only made the situation harder, however, he noticed tears had formed and were rolling down her face, as she asked another “When”. The young man apologized, but Honami responded to it by giving him a pat on the head, and quietly going back inside.
She had a sorrowfully small dinner that night.
The young man would come by her home every now and then, a sentiment which confused the hybrid, asking things like how she was and what she was doing. Regardless of how she felt, she went along with her routine as usual, aside from when he’d show up. Her behavior was offputting, never really answering him when he asked things, til he brought a notepad and a pencil with him, giving them to her and asking her again. This time, it prompted a response, of which Honami wrote and shared the pad’s contents with him. This kind of practice would go on for years, however the hybrid didn’t seem to get too close with him, aside from training. The language barrier was a tough one, and he was often pretty busy with his own duties and life, nor did she ever come by his own dwelling.
Soon he asked if she had any intention of enrolling at Shin’o Academy, which then lead into a drawn out discussion on what it was like, what she could learn, and other things. He eventually convinced her to actually enroll, despite her hurt heart, and soon she was approved into the Academy. However, soon it was discovered that she would have issues within the center of learning.
Most forms of Kido were difficult for her to perform, her ability in using Hoho was non-existant, she frequently had issues staying awake and attentive during daytime classes, and thus her grades suffered. She ended up being a student who would be held behind far longer than the typical person, due to these difficulties, and her teacher’s frequent frustrations with her. She had her difficulties with manifesting and communicating with her Zanpakuto spirit, however managed to achieve Shikai towards the tail end of her prolonged stay in the Academy, roughly 10 years.
It was more or less a difficulty in attaching to her weapon, but once she achieved such a connection, learning the name of her spirit took only months to achieve, however she still has had a few difficulties here and there with stabilizing with her spirit. Be it due to her demonic half or personality, or some other third factor is unknown, but she had proven to be a competent sword fighter. She learned to use her brutal strength in order to increase her speed through momentum instead of using Hoho techniques, and became more strongly versed in using defensive or healing Kido, rather than hitting the stubborn wall that was performing the offensive. She managed to graduate, and had been recruited into the Fourth Division, where she has been in to this day.
She hadn't been able to go onto many real big missions, and such a thing left her longing for something big to do, rather than doing the same series of fighting over and over again..
I. Equipment» Equipment:
[If your Shinigami has any equipment? Put it here. If they don't, skip this section.]» Racial Notes:
» Honey’s demonic abilities only span to physical and sensory augmentations; She is incapable of using any demonic energy-derived attacks
» She is incapable of using Possessive Drives
» As far as energy-related attacks, they lean heavily towards shinigami specialties rather than demonic
» Direct sunlight weakens her as a result of her mixed energies, and her demonic half’s proficiency in the darkness
» Body Manipulation and Regeneration are much slower than pureblooded demons; Limbs cannot be restored mid combat. If vitals are destroyed, cannot regenerate fast enough to carry herself out of critical condition (Effectively death if no aid is given)
I. Natural Abilities & Skills» Natural Abilities: Iron Skin:
Honey naturally has very tough skin, which makes the typical cut or scrape much harder to inflict on her. While her skin may appear soft, it is actually far harder and coarser than appearances. You wouldn’t be able to cut her with the typical knife or needle, more than often spiritual or other energy-infused weapons being able to even begin to create a dent on her tough skin. Low grade weapons are going to have a hard time cutting through her, to say the least.Heightened Senses:
All of Honey’s senses are far sharper than the average being’s. Her eyes can be compared to a hawk’s, being able to see even small things from far distances with a generous amount of detail, as well as be able to keep track of everything going on in her immediate field of vision with narrow difficulty and to be able to react to everything in real time. Her sense of smell is sharp enough to catch even another being’s energy in order to track them, however they needed to have left a tangible trail behind, she can't just sniff and say they're in X dimension right now, but regardless of hangups, there is no denying that her ability to track others is a strong and expressive trait. Her sense of hearing is sharp enough to catch and differentiate detailed differences in tones of voice, footsteps, the sound of organs, etc. to the point that Honey can even name who’s in the current building if she’s heard them before. Abnormal Strength:
Honey is in possession of a brutal kind of strength; Regardless of her form or size, her strength is largely the same. Honey was gifted with immense strength and stamina from birth, however honed and sculpted this into a disciplined, yet very much frightening, level of strength as an adult. She had been trained from a young age to constantly keep her body moving, and later on had to rely on fighting constant brutal battles in order to keep her werewolf-esque aggression down, and because of all of these events, she is fully able to get through a fight through brutal strength alone. She has particular pride in hand to hand combat, and has been known to be able to render opponents to mere bloody pieces if they weren’t able to match her strength.Insane Stamina:
Much like her strength, Honey was born with an insane amount of energy for a small child, taking quite a long time to even get close to tiring out. This has only been honed and strengthed through years of endurance training, Honey capable of handling extreme conditions without growing tired or stressed typically. She’s no stranger to running literal miles without stopping, constantly brutalizing an opponent, lifting heavy objects without a break, etc.Size Manipulation:
By default, Honey is around nine feet tall, however she is able to grow or shrink her body by either making herself younger, or increasing her physical muscle mass. She’s been doing this ability rather casually since a young age, so plenty of practice had been put into making this a thing she can do practically at will. She can say, quickly avoid a slash attack by shrinking herself into a younger form, or make her mass larger by stressing her muscles to keep an opponent pinned under a larger entity. However, 11 feet tall is her current limit in terms of size increase, and she can only use this ability in humanoid form.Beast Strength Manifestation:
To give her body a temporary, wolf-like boost in a pinch, Honey can morph one of her limbs into a beast-like one, becoming noticeably larger and covered in golden fur along with forming wolf paws and equally terrifying claws. She can’t maintain the form for the entirety of combat, due to how stressful it is to be maintaining both halves of herself at the same time, but she can easily use it in a single movement in order to perform an attack, change back, and be able to use it again rather quickly. Said limb also gets noticeably larger and muscled compared to the rest of her body. Heart Of The Beast:
During a pinch, Honey can sort of flick herself into a mode of not being able to experience pain or advanced thought, be it through letting her instincts take the wheel for a moment, or something else entirely that goes throughout her mind. She has had plenty of practice using this state of mind, and thus will not attack allies in this state. Said state will last for a maximum of 5 posts before she is forced to snap out of it, however things like being pushed to the brink of death can force her to wake up sooner, as preservation of life is more important than getting the opponent killed. She cannot continuously enter this state, losing the ability to reenter it until the thread has ended, since it's far too strenuous on the body to be doing over and over; It's more or less a last ditch push to try to swing the battle favorably.Hunter’s Focus:
For about 5 posts (with a 1 post cooldown needed), Honey can enter a state of increased concentration that she created and learned to hone during her many hunting trips and training sessions with her Uncle, where her perception of time speeds up and thus can detect things going on faster than they’re happening. However, she can only use this ability towards things in her field of vision, no other senses are amplified in this state.Hunter’s Reflexes:
Honey’s ability to quickly process and react to attacks is a noticeable skill. Such a thing was sharpened to it’s current state by her training in her younger years, as only strength and brutality wouldn’t be enough to get her through combat competently. If she was to be a brawler, she’d have to be able to react and recover fast enough to avoid getting killed herself, and that she practiced in herself diligently. With assistance from her incredible abilities in focus and her sharper senses, Honey can quickly learn and predict and in turn, react to attacks within typical death-preventing seconds, being capable of doing things such as either dodging small, fast projectiles, catching a weapon between her hands, and dodging suddenly whiplash attacks and in turn, giving her own counter to said attack, be it throwing their own projectile back at them, or giving them a big healthy knuckle sandwich with a side of punch.Strength Augmentation:
For some reason, it appears Honey’s particular type of demon in her half blooded existence thrives off of devouring the flesh of the living for maximum sustenance. Because of this, Honey is able to gain a spike in strength and stamina if she were to devour raw meat of a living creature, however no spike in energy and strength can even come close to comparing to if she were to devour a humanoid’s flesh and blood. Think of it like this, Honey gets burnt down, and then devours a small creature, a quarter strength is returned to her. Medium creatures are about half, Large creatures are about three quarters, and then even a mouthful of a humanoid’s flesh and blood basically restores her to full strength. Though, she will not feel these effects immediately, she needs time in order for her body to digest and reap the benefits of devouring such things (Graph is below). However, she can’t feast off of corpses or the living dead, it needs to be either living meat, or very recently dead creatures, however even then the benefits begin to quickly dwindle by the second.
Effects (By post):
Eating a small creature -
Gains full benefits within a 1 post period
Eating a medium creature -
Gains full benefits within a 2 post period
Eating a large creature -
Gains full benefits within a 3 post period
Eating a humanoid's parts -
Gains full benefits within a 5 post periodGhost of the Predator:
Though Honey is by no means versed in stealth combat, she has at least one natural ability in order to aid in remaining hidden until needed. More a natural ability than a honed one, Honey is able to completely and utterly hide her presence, down to her heartbeat, footsteps, and other noises. While appearing diminished, her energy is still able to be sensed, but the typical creature or untrained eye would not be able to detect her until it’s far too late, much like a predator stalking it’s prey from the shadows and striking at just the right moment.Beast’s Claws and Fangs:
Honey’s biology continues to be a rather fearsome thing, in that even her teeth and claws are deadly weapons. Her teeth are sharp and barely human-like, being more comparable to a wolf’s teeth formatted to a humanoid mouth than anything out, her fangs even sometimes poking out from her lips from how long and sharp they are, and her claws are always long, thick, and sharp, appearing more like an animal’s than a typical human’s thin, fragile nails, both perfect for rending meat into shreds. Though further analysis would reveal that they are just about as hard as diamond, hard to blunt or break from even the most intensive forces. Her bite force is measurable to that of even the strongest jawed creature’s (several thousand psi), and has been known to easily break bones and tear flesh with her teeth alone.Momentum-Based Speed:
Due to being unable to use any Hoho skills, Honey came up with a different way to keep up with the crowd; Using her immense strength, she can boost herself in a desired direction, instead of using conventional running or techniques. Concentrating strength into one foot and boosting herself, she can advance in any desired direction at the speed of a bullet, however her body still operates within physics; If she wants to stop, slow down, or make a turn, she has to physically stop herself, be it grinding her feet into the dirt, or catching herself off another object.
I. Possesisve Powers» Possessive Powers: Beast Form:
From an early age, it was discovered that Honey’s demonic half was rather similar to a lycanthrope, and as such can assume the form of a wolf-like creature. Both her humanoid and canid forms are completely natural to her, so both could be considered her “true form”, however this version of the wolf she is in complete control over, compared to her true power awakened by the shine of the full moon. Her wolf body has the following traits:Large Size
- She’s big, and by big, she could be compared to an elephant in terms of size while on her fours.Humanoid
- While she does appear very much like a wolf, she still retains semblance of a human form and functions, such as being able to walk on twos and use her front paws as functional hands, however remaining upright is a bit awkward for her, as she is far more anatomically similar to a quadruped than a biped. Thick Fur
- Very similar to her iron skin, Honey’s fur provides a second layer of thick defense, however it is soft and silky outside of combat, as adrenaline is required to cause them to bristle and become firm enough to become a second coating of protection.
Retains All Abilities From Previous Form
- Self explanatory; Honey has practiced using her current set of abilities in conjunction with her changed, larger body, and thus doesn’t lose her aptitude in her current moveset; They’re simply done differently with similar effect in her bigger, lupine body.Full-Moon Beast Form:
When exposed to the full moon’s light, unlike her controllable form, she becomes a far larger, horned wolf for as long as the moon shines. Her physical strengths are doubled in this form, and said form is very difficult for her to use, so difficult that she actively refrains from being out in the moon, for fear of going out of control and hurting people.
I. Racial Techniques/Abilities/Skills» Racial Abilities: Kido:
Honey was never able to perform any offensive kido, and even then learning kido period was a challenge, however she managed to get the hang of using healing spells instead of offensive or defensive, though she is able to make weak defensive spells. It’s thought that her weakness in learning it was due to the nature of her demonic side, however her desire to protect the innocent fueled her drive to at least manifest an aptitude in healing.Zanjutsu and Hakuda:
Two things that Honey uses to a masterful extent. Honey has been training with swords and fighting since she was little, and in the latter years of her youth learned to use the two in conjunction, rather than just one or the other. She can frequently be seen using both hand to hand moves filled with brutal force and her sword together in combat, though can decide to use only fists if she feels the fight isn’t worth going all out in.Hoho:
She has absolutely no skill in Hoho, unfortunately, using physical force to move herself quickly rather than techniques.
I. Sealed Powers » Zanpakutô Name:
Oka-Jin» Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance:
Oka-Jin has a rather intriguing appearance, taking the appearance of a kirin, however is furred and many features seeming to leak some canine in with the dragon and horse. Her body is composed of cool hues, how Honey would describe said colors would be how cold winds would look in the form of colors. She is a rather large, yet majestic creature, donning short antlers that wouldn’t dare hinder her ability to run across the meadows of the Inner World, her footsteps lighter than even clouds.» Inner World:
Honey’s Inner World is a large, sprawling meadow filled with endless rivers and lakes full of beautiful stones, and an everblowing wind. Everything seems to always move within this space, aside from the ever present crescent moon in the sky, that somehow is able to give off the light of dawn almost always, stars lightly twinkling in the watercolor-esque sky. The air smells clean and fresh as the winds flow, the beds of grass filled with all manners of flower-bearing flora that seems impossible to trample no matter how many times it’s been stepped upon.» Zanpakutô Appearance:
Honey’s Zanpakuto in it’s sealed state looks like a typical katana, aside from the lacy white ribbon that inconspicuously hangs from it’s hilt, that is actually able to lengthen up to 40 feet, and quickly retract for Honey’s longer distance attacks.» Sealed Zanpakutô Power: Wind Shear:
One of Honey’s many primary forms of attack at her base power level, of which she imbues her Zanpakuto with the winds of her surroundings, greatly increasing the sharpness and giving her sword a basic means of long distance attack, being that by swinging her sword, she can create a giant, single slash of wind that is capable of mowing through many kinds defenses, and the ill prepared would surely be cut terribly, or in worst cases, nearly in half. Her capabilities in this ability are tied to her Zanjutsu stat.Eye of the Breeze:
By focusing her eyes to the wind’s movements, Honey can spread her winds out to a minimum radius of 3 miles, and a maximum of 5 if she is allowed to focus for an additional post. For as long as the winds can touch them (Meaning they can’t be in something obstructive such as buildings or heavy protection), Honey can see all that goes on within this radius in a sonar-like state, however she must remain still and have her eyes closed during the entire duration of this skill. Whirlwind:
Honey is able to bind the winds to her will in order to fulfill many purposes. Possibly being one of her most versatile Zanpakuto skills, she is able to do things such as carry objects and herself in strong twists of wind (She cannot carry anything that would provide massive resistance against her, such as an entire several story building, think of it as being able to carry things that both her strength and a terrible storm could carry away), blow things away with a sudden burst of wind, bring things to herself, and aid in techniques, any and all usages of the wind being to set something into a particular motion, she cannot immobilize something in wind, only blow it in a certain direction. She can only affect things with wind that are within 40 feet of her, even then the concentration of wind weakens noticeably past the 30 foot mark. Overall, her usage of the wind is flexible and strong as long as she is in constant contact with her Zanpakuto (This skill is tied to her Strength skill, and thus her strength capabilities with the wind will be the same as her actual physical capabilities).Eye of the Storm:
A very short scale, easier to use version of Eye of the Breeze; Rather than the entirety of a large expanse, Honey can use the winds in order to aid in her ability to percieve her surroundings. By shutting her eyes and focusing, she can see a constant 360 degree view of the field around her in a 20 feet radius in a similar sonar-like vision to The Breeze. As long as her targets can be touched by the wind, she can see them, and is able to react in real time to any attacks behind her, or even if she were to be blinded by something such as mist or something blacking her vision out. Wind Snare:
A kind of trap Honami can set with her Zanpakuto. Think of it like a form of bola, except far less traceable aside from a slight visible warping of the floor in one small spot. If a being steps nearby it, be it friend or foe, they will be suddenly ensnared by a construct made of wind. Said construct would be hard to rend, considering it is crafted from energies rather than rope or metal, making it a sufficient tool in trapping creatures. Said victim will be stuck in the spot, and Honey will be alerted that said specific trap was triggered by her Zanpakuto the second it is sprung. Despite being a rather surprising trap, it can easily be cut using a spiritual weapon, and if one were to be proficient in sensing energies, they could sense where all the traps were laid out in a field in order to avoid them. She is able to set many of these (Max 25), given enough time to construct and set in a competent area, however she cannot set a bunch super close together (It would make a big mess, to say the least. Doesn’t make for a good trap if your traps trap each other).
I. Shikai» Shikai Release Phrase:
“Howl, Oka-Jin!”» Shikai Release Action:
Honey must raise her sword to the sky while saying the phrase» Shikai Appearance:
The metal of Honey’s sword completely evaporates, becoming a literal, glowing saber of malleable wind sprouting from the hilt, becoming sharp enough to cut through even hard materials with competent wielding.» Shikai Abilities: Hurricane Shear:
A far more elaborate version of Wind Shear, being instead of creating just one deadly slash of wind, creates a giant storm of many, smaller sharp slashes of wind, that have had the power to cut down even dozens of trees. The sharpness of the blade becomes so razor, it puts even the sharpest of weapons to shame, being able to cut through even stubborn forms of physical defense.Galestorm:
By twirling her blade about, she is able to create a protective windstorm around herself that will last for a total of 4 posts if undisturbed. However, it isn’t just a defensive measure, it is also highly offensive, being able to rend most flesh and bones to mincemeat if outside contact is applied. It is both protective, and a deadly shearer, however she is unable to move the wind around, it must remain fixed to a singular spot.Galestorm (Inverted):
Using a similar motion to regular Galestorm, instead of creating a protective bubble of wind around herself, she forms an encasement of wind around her opponent, which slowly shrinks down until it has made a few seconds of contact with solid mass, long enough to tear the typical, unguarded creature apart. Those trapped within this version of Galestorm may even feel as if their breath is being taken away by the violent winds that threaten to take their life, as well (This skill is scaled with her Zanjutsu stat). However, unlike regular Galestorm, it doesn't form as a sphere, rather it forms as a cylinder, the winds being open at the top and the bottom, given the soul within is brave enough, they could jump out through the top, or dig down, or for the truly daring, could harden their defenses and avoid being sliced to bits entirely.Tornado Shear:
A more condensed version of Hurricane Shear; instead of affecting a large area with deadly blade-like winds, Honey can condense these deadly sharp winds into a single, concentrated burst of winds. Direct contact with this will hurt, quite a lot, as you are literally being diced by many highly concentrated winds constantly. Even if you were to nary dodge it, you’d get some nasty cuts and gashes if you didn’t move far away enough.
Honey charges her opponent with a deadly sharp blade, releasing a flurry of slashes. This particular technique increases her speed tremendously by having the winds forcibly push her body. While this can only be successfully done in one direction at a time, it is a deadly move filled with razorblade wind and pain regardless.
